Verulamium Museum is filled with ancient treasures and some of the finest mosaics outside of the Mediterranean. The children had the opportunity to handle real Roman artefacts and explore what life was like in one of the largest Roman cities in Britain. They immersed themselves in Roman life, explored Roman rooms and admired intricate large-scale mosaics on display. They also viewed recent discoveries such as the Sandridge Hoard, a collection of 159 Roman gold coins.
